Drawing Winners Announced

For those of you who have been paying attention, I've finally gotten around to drawing names for those gals who placed an order in December. The winners are Barbara Scott & Jennifer Mehlman. I'll be notifying them shortly & getting their new stamps in the mail tomorrow.

Due to the dearth of orders that qualified for the chance to win only 2 winners were picked but there's always a possiblity that I'll find another reason to give away the 3rd set so stay tuned...

I hate to post anything without something to look at so here's a card I made for my sister's birthday. The image on the left is the front of the card, behind it the envelope & to the right is the inside of the card. I got the paper used on the card & envelope from Paula's Kit Club, the letters are grungeboard letters from Tim Holtz's line of Ideaology products (which I hope to start adding to my inventory before too long) The leaves are faux suede "ribbon" that I carry on my Ribbon page. I inked the letters with yellow ochre & used some distressed embossing powder to give them some texture. I then sewed the letters to the leaves & glued the leaves to the paper. The "birthday" word is done the same though the background is green ribbon. The inside of the card was inked with a combination of greens, yellows & blues then stamped with the leaf stamp from the "Flower Set" Last of all I ran the edges through my sewing machine. She didn't get it until 2 weeks after her birthday 'cause it took me a while to finish it between interruptions. It was also hand delivered rather than mailed so I don't know how well it would have held up in the mail.
